    Jonathan Brinley: A PHP Developer’s Adventures in React – Building Plugin Admin Interfaces

    WordCamp Miami 2017Speaker: Jonathan Brinley

    August 5, 2017 — Just about any moderately complex WordPress plugin requires some sort of administrative interface. In many cases, your code for this UI could benefit from the flexibility and power provided by the React JavaScript library, but integrating React with the WordPress admin brings its own set of challenges. From developer tools, to data persistence, to extensibility, we’ll explore some of these challenges and the solutions we’ve developed at Modern Tribe as we’ve used React to build elegant administrative user experiences in WordPress.

    Making React applications play nicely with the WordPress admin involves a number of tricks and workarounds. I’ll cover topics such as integration with the TinyMCE editor, communication with WP’s existing JS libraries, setting up developer tools such as hot module reloading, and persisting data in the WP database.

  • Alain Schlesser: Wrapping A Modern PHP Architecture Around A Legacy WordPress Site

    Alain Schlesser: Wrapping A Modern PHP Architecture Around A Legacy WordPress Site

    WordCamp London 2017Speaker: Alain Schlesser

    June 6, 2017 — Alain is a freelance software engineer and WordPress consultant.

    In his talk he presents a case study of wrapping a legacy WordPress site into a scalable architecture, using a combination of existing and custom packages, that provides the following benefits:
    – services architecture that lets plugins define their dependencies, with automatically resolved loading order
    – auto-wiring dependency injection that allows coding against interfaces instead of implementations
    – configuration management that can account for differences in environments
    – centralized logging throughout the entire site that can be sent to logging servers
    – bus system that handles events and commands without blocking the frontend
    – all of this without any noticeable impact on content editors

  • Roy Sivan: Learn JS Deeply, but Don’t Forget About PHP

    Roy Sivan: Learn JS Deeply, but Don’t Forget About PHP

    WordCamp San Diego 2017Speaker: Roy Sivan

    May 4, 2017 — PHP is the language that WordPress is built on, and it isn’t going anywhere. “Learn JavaScript deeply” is a great sentiment, and I feel like every aspiring developer should take JavaScript seriously if they want to go down that route. However, if you are building JavaScript (framework or not) applications powered by the WordPress REST API, don’t forget about PHP. I’ll run through a few examples of full on JavaScript application builds, where there is equal if not more PHP custom code than JavaScript. So before you learn JS deeply, do you have a moment to talk about PHP?

  • Carl Alexander: Use PHP Arrays Like a Boss

    Carl Alexander: Use PHP Arrays Like a Boss

    WordCamp Los Angeles 2016Speaker: Carl Alexander

    September 25, 2016 — You’ve heard of the good ol’ school PHP loops. You have your “for” loops, your “foreach” loops, your “while” loops, your “fruit” loops… Well maybe not that last one!

    As a WordPress developer, you use arrays and loops all the time. They’re an essential part of your developer toolbox. But do you know everything about them?

    PHP has a wealth of array functions. They’re used by PHP experts to make their life easier. They let you reduce the amount of PHP code you need. This helps prevent bugs and makes your code more maintainable.

    You’ll learn about functions like array_filter, array_map and array_reduce. All within the context of regular WordPress work. By the end of this talk, loops won’t look at you the same way ever again.

  • Derick Rethans: Debugging – Past, Present and Future

    Derick Rethans: Debugging – Past, Present and Future

    WordCamp London 2016Speaker: Derick Rethans

    July 28, 2016 — In this talk I will go over all the past, present and future debugging techniques. The talk start by giving an overview on PHP’s (ancient) standard features for debugging, additional (userland) libraries and functionality in frameworks.

    After the introductions we move on to the meatier stuff and I will talk about live-action debuggers, such as Xdebug and PHP Storm.

    For the future, I will be talking about a project that allows you to “step back” while debugging as well; introspect what your script’s or application’s exact execution paths was; and trace variable modifications.
